This week, we're featuring two works with great finales, the kind that make audiences jump to their feet, by Vivaldi and Schubert. The rollicking final movement on Vivaldi's concerto clocks in at just under one minute from start to finish, with the whole piece, all three movements, adding up to less than four minutes. Then, Schubert's Sonata in B-flat Major, a sonata that ends with a brilliant coda. The Gardner Chamber Orchestra, directed by flutist Paula Robison, plays Antonio Vivaldi's Concerto for orchestra in B-flat Major and pianist Seymour Lipkin plays Schubert's Sonata in B-flat Major, D. 960.
Recorded live in the Tapestry Room of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston.
